Hi Amy! Thank you for the welcome, it is much appreciated. In response to your question, what little I know is that the World Café approach was "renamed" for use in Tribal settings as the "RezCafe". Rez being the name most of us tribal people refer to as our reservation settings. I'm not sure beyond that how deeply if any the key concepts were adapted, my assumption is really only in the name. What I do know is that one of our grantees that we work with within my current employment has used the RezCafe model recently in a high school setting seeking to address suicide prevention.
We are interested in this approach for that same target issue in assisting our tribal communities in addressing suicide prevention efforts, challenges, solutions and approaches by an attempt to host a summit utilizing the World Café format. Any suggestions or tips would be helpful.
I was a participant in a World Café at my workplace and also studies the process as part of a Masters in Business Psychology. I would like to learn and hear stories about the World Café from the community.
Hi Amy thanks for the welcome :) Was fabulous to meet everyone on Global WC (20Years celebration) and to be made to feel so welcome and included was very special indeed.
